Homage to the greatest female tattooer that has ever lived and one of my personal heroes:

Whang Od (Buscalan, Philippines)

When Whang Od was twenty-five, the man she was in love with died in a logging accident. Instead of looking for a new husband, she dedicated her life to tattooing and now sixty odd years later she is the last practitioner of an art form that many scholars believe is nearly one thousand years old. Whang Od is still tattooing in her nineties.
